Who cares about Narduzzi, 48-14 is a dagger in the heart for all my Pitt friends.  They still cringe when I remind them of it.

I had a chance to talk with Ms. Barbour at the SOLD OUT Coaches Caravan at Penn State Hazleton and asked her specifically about a contract extension for Pat.  A two year extension is in the works to bring him back to a four year contract.  Her telling statement was "You don't throw out the baby with the bathwater."  She has full confidence in Pat moving the program forward.  She was pleased when I agreed that the program is moving forward and am happy to hear a contract extension is in the works.

Harbaugh must have sleepovers with each of the reporters putting this list together. #5 and his strongest team at Michigan came in third in the division!  Wait until this year with considerably young and less talent, ouch.

Just got back from the SOLD OUT Coaches Caravan at Penn State Hazleton.  My wife and I sat with a couple from Danville and one from State College, great interest from the alumni who packed the gymnasium.  Food Services put out a very tasty and varied luncheon for those attending.  An excellent presentation followed leaving the crowd happy but wanting to hear more, but they had to head down to Harrisburg for tonight's stop.

but noted that it's a group of Big Ten East schools standing out early as far as consistently contacting him, naming Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State specifically.

LOL, Buttgers!  Not even mentioned by the NJ #1 Player.

I think Holland really stood out and has solidified 2nd string status and I am salivating a 2 tight end set in the Red Zone and the defense dumping a load with two giants to control the middle of the field.

Boy, are we spoiled.  Cael is leading the change in the way collegiate wrestling is headed. He is turning the wrestling world on its head by rejecting the old adage that cutting weight will be best for a wrestler. Letting a wrestler be at his optimum weight not only allows his balls to the wall offensive driven philosophy, but leaves a pretty full gas tank in the 3rd period to let his wrestlers dominate.  It is no wonder that any offensive minded wrestler wants to join the Nittany grapplers to put himself in position to be a national champion.  It is a great time to be a wrestling fan and even better time to be a Nittany Lion wrestling fan.

I just watched the replay of the game.  What jumped out at me was how much faster our guys were than the Union players.  Even starting behind them the sprint to the puck had them ahead and it looked like it wore Union down and led to the big 3rd period outburst.

With the return of healthy the Nelson and Mahon duo I think it will line up as Nelson, Bates, McGovern, Wright and Mahon.  I like the idea of the huge road graders across the middle to open up the middle for the running game.  No negative rushes for Saquon will put him over 1,800 yards for the season.

I can't wait for September.

A "hot" goalie like Peyton can take this team all the way.  I was impressed with the defensive effort in front of him on tired legs but he was the brick wall in front of that goal and was most deserving of being named the MVP.

Comment 19 Mar 2017

Congratulations to our newest National Championship team!  I am still in awe of the performance put up by this year's team.  How they each rose to the challenge in front of them taking in stride the expected dominance by Zain and Nolf and the "upset" run from Cenzo, Mark, and Bo to give us 5 National Champions.  And boy have we become spoiled since Cael showed up in new center of wrestling excellence, Happy Valley.  Thank you Cael for putting together such a great team and fantastic staff.

As I have noted before, this team has passed my eye test and now the analytics show my eye is still good.

As a coach you live and die with the insertion of youth into your lineup, but Pat made the decision to start the youngsters and give them a lot of minutes and this will only help in the long term as they grow up.  He is bringing in help at the 4 for, hopefully, improvements in rebounding.

I hope they are ready to take the next step in their progression and reach the NIT next year at a minimum with possibly being a bubble team for the Big Dance.
